Join Exploratorium staff Paul Doherty and Robyn Higdon as they discuss the Transit of Mercury.
On November 8, 2006, Mercury slowly slid across the face of the sun during an event known as a transit. The Exploratorium's expedition crew was at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, and, with the Kitt Peak staff, we webcast the transit: a live five-hour telescope feed with commentary at the top of each hour.
